Borough Rain Gardens

Slowing The Flow One Rain Garden at a Time

Rain Gardens are an effective solution for stormwater management. Rain gardens are low lying green areas that contain rocks and water-tolerant plants that help slow and collect rain water that would've otherwise become runoff.

Allen Street Rain Garden

Here in the Borough, we have three rain gardens- two on Allen Street and one on Barnard Street. They have been effectively capturing stormwater and community attention since 2010.
